Citi’s commercial cards unit has rolled-out a mobile-optimised version of its CitiManager desktop portal as an ‘on the move’ account management tool. Using the CitiManager Mobile product corporate clients can view their card accounts, statements and new transactions from multiple mobile operating systems (OS), including Apple’s iOS, Windows Phone, Google’s Android OS, and Blackberry.
Accessible in 22 languages, the CitiManager Mobile also allows users at US companies to pay outstanding balances on their Citi Commercial Card accounts. The payment feature means cardholders or internal corporate financial departments can view the current balance and the balance due, select the bank account from which they would like to pay their bills, and pay any amount up to the balance due.
“The launch of CitiManager Mobile is a significant milestone for us, exemplifying our dedication and commitment to delight our clients through innovation and digitisation” said Naveed Sultan, Citi’s global head of treasury and trade solutions. “Because it is available to cardholders in over 20 languages across 50 countries, [I believe] CitiManager Mobile sets us apart from our competitors and allows our cardholders to continue experiencing an offering that is truly global.”
According to Manish Kohli, global head of Citi Commercial Cards, the new launch “provides cardholders with an intuitive tool for on-the-go business professionals whose office may be the train, airport or anywhere else in the world”.
